    Pere Goriot-- Balzac :star4:+

    The Charterhouse of Parma-- Stendhal :star5:

    Onitsha-- Le Clezio :star4:

    Madame Bovary-- Flaubert :star5:

    Having recently read (and/or re-read) 2 Balzac novels, both Stendhals and Flaubert's MB. I am a contrarian and personally like Stendhal best of the triumvirate. Somehow his verve and drive and winking narrative assides, as well as character depth would have me re-reading his novels before even Flaubert's tho I admire Flaubert's prose more...

    (From Dec: kinda in shock from above 3/5 so I felt compelled to post my take)
    Dreams of My Russian Summers-- Makine :star5: ++
